Cove Cottage is a converted barn which is located very close to the sea at Budle Bay in the small hamlet of Waren Mill. It is part of a group of 4 properties set around a shared courtyard called Smugglers Court. It has a quiet outdoor seating area with table and chairs, which is a suntrap and ideal for enjoying the sunshine.
The cottage is furnished and equipped to the same level as our own home, so you can be assured of cleanliness and comfort. Relax on our comfortable M&S sofas, John Lewis beds and enjoy the plentiful fluffy towels and crisp hotel quality cotton sheets.
Cove Cottage is an upside-down house with the living area and kitchen on the first floor to take full advantage of the wonderful exposed original barn beams. On the first floor is the open plan kitchen/ dining area with fully fitted oak kitchen complete with electric fan oven and grill, induction hob, extractor, microwave, toaster and dishwasher and fully equipped with everything you need. The cupboards are packed full of all the crockery, cutlery, pots and pans, glass- and ovenware and kitchen utensils for all your cooking needs. There is an extending oak dining table with seating for four.
The lounge area has original oak beams, two sofas and various pieces of oak furniture. For the cooler days there is a cast iron log burner-style electric fire. Radiators in all rooms provide a cosy environment, no matter what the weather.
There is a well-stocked bookcase with ficton and non-fiction books as well as a good selection of DVDs and CDs for you to enjoy on your holiday. The cottage has a flatscreen freeview smart TV with catch-up services such as BBC iPlayer as well as a DVD player. We also have a Sony PlayStation PS3 games console, complete with a large selection of games and multiple controllers. You can access NowTV on the PS3, which gives you a huge selection of current shows and box sets (Entertainment) and films (Sky Movies).
On the ground floor there are two bedrooms, one with twin single beds and one with a comfortable king size bed. Both bedrooms have plenty of wardrobe and drawer space. There are hairdryers and bedside lamps in each bedroom. Also on the ground floor is the family bathroom, complete with bath and over-bath 10kW electric shower.
There is fibre broadband and wifi at the cottage (approx. 35 Mb, so you can stream and download without interruption) and we have provided our guests with a landline phone with honesty box, as mobile signal can be variable on some networks.
There is off-road parking for one car in the courtyard down the side of the cottage, with further parking for additional cars available outside the courtyard.
If you want to experience the stunning beauty of this area whilst enjoying the quietness and comfort of Cove Cottage, then this is the place for you.
Northumberland still remains one of the best undiscovered places of natural beauty in the UK, steeped in history with many wonderful castles and historic houses, Hadrians Wall and the wild Cheviot Hills to name but a few. Boat trips leave Seahouses daily for the Farne Islands, weather permitting.
Below we have listed a little of what's on offer in the Northumberland area:
Walk from the cottage across the road and over the bridge to Budle Bay, which is part of the Lindisfarne nature reserve. This is a very popular bird watching spot and it is right on your doorstep. The lovely village of Bamburgh is only 2 miles and there are various public footpath routes with stunning coastal and inland views. We are also just a few miles by car to Holy Island, Alnwick Castle, Berwick-upon-Tweed and many other beautiful spots along this lovely coastline.
